I recently upgraded to the new Mac OS X Catalina. I receive this message every time I run DosBox. I have given permission in Security to allow input, but the message keeps appearing. I did not get this message with Mojave.

Any suggestions for a fix?

Saw a similar report and lengthy solution here - https://support.logi.com/hc/en-au/articles/360023203954
Looks like it involves quite a few adjustments - do any of them help? (in addition to your existing security setting)

If you are using the latest version and not a beta then it could be the tracking of the mouse

"Rest assured, Cinch does not monitor keystrokes, but does track the mouse cursor in order to trigger window resizing. Cinch 1.2.3 and prior used an older technology to track mouse events called an "Event Tap." A new "Input Monitoring" permission was added in macOS 10.15 Catalina which detects apps using an Event Tap (even if just for mouse events) and pops up this warning. Cinch 1.2.4 now uses a more modern "Global Event Monitor" to track the mouse on Catalina and later to avoid this warning."

So likely an SDL issue.

Test SDL1 vs SDL2 and if doesn't occur with SDL2 then that could be why. If occurs in both then not fixed in SDL2 either.
